This week we are praying for Martin & Fran Russell who serve on the National Leadership team for Agape Italia in Florence, Italy.
Please pray and give thanks as follows:
Give thanks for the rest and refreshment we had away on the coast during June
Give thanks for the time Fran has contributed to the National Leadership team. She has now stepped down and will continue to serve one day a week and give more time to sharing her faith with her friends here in Florenc
Please continue to pray for Fran's recovery from 2 knee replacement ops and Martin's new treatment.
Over July and August Martin will have more time to get on top of a few projects while the rest of the ministry is a bit quieter. Please pray for him as he catches up on these.
Pray for Tiffany during August as she will be moving from her assignment in Rome to work on Martin's team and lead the national digital/social media programme. Pray she can find housing and settle in quickly
Pray the for 2 new staff: Alessandro who will be working on film and media production; and Lauren who recently married Matteo a staff member in Rome. She will be working at our refugee ministry base in the city. Pray that they can complete building their ministry partner team and find all the funding they will need..
Give thanks for the opportunities we have had as we celebrate our 25th year working with Agape. Thank the Lord for sustaining us over all these years and the things he has taught us during this time.
